Often have dreams been frightful
Seldom are they delightful
Elaborately a world created
Disastrously that world faded

Opening eyes to witness nothings changed
Closing eyes to hide how it's pained

In that moment that was dreamt
What could that dream have meant
The gaze was true as it had been
A dream brought to end
I envy those who have beautiful dreams. Even those who look forward to dreaming. Over the last few years mine have done nothing but frighten or torment me. Last night I had a dream and wished it never ended.

Years have passed                                                           ­                                

Moments of pique

Life's taken a blast                                                            ­                              
Feelings turned meek

Lost within                                                           ­                                            
Lost without

                   A Heart's defeat                                              

A Bird most missed                                                           ­                             
Migration followed
Those lips once kissed                                                           ­                       
This body's hollowed

Love is War                                                              ­                                         

War is Love

How could one **** a Dove?                                   .
It's been so long and I've come to realize: This scar's pain won't leave me and I deserve it.

You cant escape reality
When it hugs you like a casket
Ready to burry you deep into the ground

Mister J
Heavy is a mind
That is chained to its past

Heavy is a soul
That knows no way forward

Heavy is a spirit
That keeps running around in circles

Heavy are the eyes
That never stopped shedding tears

Heavy are the ears
That remain slaves to your voice

Heavy are the hands
That knows no other feeling but you

Heavy is the heart
That is struggling to forget everything

Heavy is a person
That drags himself down
To memories that will never
Become a reality

Heavy are his dreams
If these dreams can never be
And will only be
The source of his nightmares

Heavy are the arms
That helplessly linger for yours
Constantly waiting for you
Though never to come back

No more

I've had enough
Midnight writing

Thanks for reading!

Andrew Name
tell me something
at the end of the summer
how we've spent days
for the warm shadow of jasmine

I'm dumb in common
separated from home
one of the worst romans
in the way of his own

deceit and demise
narcissism and mice
went rumble and bumble
went crimble and crumble
German Rodriguez Sep 2022
I walk this road,
I betrayed my ode.
Once again, gave in to chance.
Once again, speared by lance.

Walls I've built to trust and hold.
Seem to always crumble and fold.
This naught be the way,
I plan to go about my day.

Take rest once more,
Yet it hurts the core.
This heart I've wore,
I care not to restore.

Acceptance as a virtue,
Will cause this new curfew.
Solitude is foreseen,
Inside must not intervene.

Pushed away my thoughts
And all they've sought.
For what they've brought,
Has never stayed.
I told myself long ago- give up trying, but as long as the heart beats it always screams "give love another chance- always."
I'll leave it to deaf ears now and act as if I cannot hear those screams.
And remain alone.
German Rodriguez May 2022
Drawing back the sinew
Tension silently increasing
Bolt of betrayal, crashing within you
Impaled with a feeling never ceasing

Dampened, darkened, and discarded
Forged a world, now laid to rot in

Joyous sung our choirs verses
filled with vile sicken curses
From those once loved
Now we share their song
Closure doesn't exist, you only learn how to live with the pain.
